Hair Jewelry was made as mourning jewelry, remembrance jewelry and a gift of love during Victorian times and before, when there were no pictures to look upon and remember a loved one with. Hair jewelry makes a unique and beautiful gift for oneself, or for a loved one. Hair jewelry is made and given with love.
Each piece is packaged in a "treasure" box for safekeeping when not being worn. These pieces if properly cared for should last for generations.
This jewelry is made using the "cutwork" or "palette work" technique, and results in a pendant of "wearable art". Very little hair is needed, a small lock is sufficient to make any of the styles shown, and the designs depicted on this website are representations of what can be done. All designs are custom created to your specifications.
